The newly formed Helsinki University Geodynamics Group (HUGG) is lead by Assistant Professor David Whipp. We study the basic geodynamic processes involved in deformation of the lithosphere. Our research focuses on quantifying the kinematics and dynamics of tectonic, geomorphic and geodynamic processes using 3D numerical numerical models in combination with field, laboratory and geophysical observations. Specific areas of interest include
